From P&C's website: The first all black cavendish blend in the Seattle Pipe Club series, Harbor Lights is made of a special one-sucker type of burley that has been toasted and then steamed until soft and black. Hints of vanilla and honey join dark fruit notes. The flavor is rich and the aroma is incredible.

Very Mild Mild Mild to Medium Very Pleasant

Wow. Wow wow wow. I didnt think much of this, especially when ordering. This was just an impulse buy. Plain and simple.

But for me, Joe, once again, can do no wrong. Every single thing i have tried is great!

When popping the tin, you are met with tobacco black as night, but you are greeted with the sweetest, creamy aroma you have ever smelt. It doesnt grab you and say "SMELL ME!!!! IM VANILLA!!!!" It merely just welcomes you with a rich, sweet cream aroma, that wants to be drenched in fruit. I couldnt even guess what type of "fruit" they discribe, but its not some candy type fruit flavor. Moisture content is a little tacky, but not bad. I let some dry long enough for my coffee to brew.

Loading was simple. Upon lighting. That sweet cream aroma is right up front. Just sweet sweet billowing clouds of white smoke.

After a tamp or 2, the flavor mellows out. Almost too much. But non the less. A delicious smoke so far.

Half way through, the flavor is back again. But not over powering. No harshness. No burnt baccy. No N kick whatso ever. Flavor is pretty consistent. Its either there, or so mellow you miss it. But it doesnt bother me, it makes me appreciate the smoke even more.

Burns to a beautiful white ash. Not a single relight the entire bowl. I didnt even get that wonderful chemical taste 90% of aros have.

Honestly. Im really upset this stuff disappeared off P&C. I really should have cracked this tin sooner, so i could buy more. Its that good.

Mild Medium Medium Very Pleasant

A very dark, almost black Cavenish greets you upon opening of a very stylized tin along with a pleasantly sweet aroma of Vanilla.

Produces nice voluminous smoke at lightup. I'm not sure I detect the fruits as described but do get some honey however, Vanilla is the main flavor.

It does need some drying time. Burns cool with moderate puffing. Like all Cavendish aromatics it will leave a ghost behind. Room note should be a wife/girlfriend pleaser so don't grab for your coat.

Should be a hit with the CB, 1-Q crowd.

Very Mild Medium Mild Pleasant to Tolerable

I would consider this to be an OK entry level aromatic. The leaves are stewed into a moist ball of thin flakes, topped with enough flavor juice to stain the paper doily inside. The aroma is quite pleasant, with a sweet vanilla, honey thing going on, but quickly fades once lit.

It is a pretty one dimensional black Cavendish with little nicotine, almost no bite, but boring enough to preclude it from being an all day smoker.

It packs quite well and stays lit with no fuss, making a decent entry level tobacco for those new to the hobby, but lacks distinction for me to recommend this as a must buy aromatic.

Extremely Mild Very Mild Very Mild Very Pleasant

Yo solo noto sabor a vainilla y algo de menta. Muy buen olor en la habitación, no molesta. Echa mucho humo y el tabaco es de color negro. Ceniza blanca. No da la sensación de estar fumando, no pica, no rasca, es extremadamente suave, como un tabaco light. No sacia. Te quedas con ganas de fumar algo distinto. Será bueno para hacer mezclas. Aportará suavidad y buen sabor a algún tabaco más fuerte.
